Are you kidding me?

Reader comment on item: Uniting to Exclude Saudi Arabian Airlines

Submitted by Leah Shalek (United States), Aug 23, 2007 at 02:39

Generally I agree with Mr. Pipes, but I think it's laughable, no, TRAGIC that he thinks we should disallow Saudi Arabian Airlines to fly into Western airports for the "detestable policy" of banning objects of other religions besides Islam.

That a detestable policy? HOW ABOUT THEIR TREATMENT OF WOMEN? Saudis should be banned from all commerce and all contact with, and all benefit from, all decent countries and peoples around the world until such a day as they set their women free.

Seriously! Mr. Pipes is concentrating on the grain of sand while the boulder's staring him straight in the eye!
